The 11th match of Vivo IPL 2018, between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, began with the Rajasthan Royals batting first. As opener short fell early, Rahane on the other end started scoring with patience, while the middle order batsman Sanju Samson began a thundering attack on the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers.
Though Rahane departed on 36, Sanju Samson launched a massive attack and went on to unleash a powerful onslaught of sixers and fours, hitting the RCB bowlers across the park. With Stokes (27) and Butler (23) coming up with cameos, Sanju Samson remained unbeaten on a stunning 92(45b, 2x4,10x6), propelling Rajasthan Royals to a massive 217/4 off 20 overs.
In came the RCB batsmen and they faced an early setback with power player McCullum departing early, but captain Virat Kohli instilled confidence in the chase, and went on to score in a brisk pace, but departed unexpectedly before completing the chase, scoring 57(30b, 7x4,2x6). With Shreyas Gopal taking the prized scalps of Kohli and Ab De Villiers,it ended RCB's hopes of a victory, as Mandeep Singh desperately tried to salvage some pride, to reduce the margin of defeat, as he scored a calm 47, as RCB ultimately lost the match by 19 runs, as Sanju Samson was awarded player of the match for his stunning 92.
